I don't know how people can be writing good reviews of this restaurant - it must be the management creating accounts and faking reviews. I have had to create a trip advisor account because I feel so strongly about this 'restaurant'. We arrived and thought it looked lovely- though there weren't many people. Now we know why it was empty.... More

There are many lovely restaurants in Ronda. This is not one of them and based on our experience on Saturday, you should avoid it at all costs. My vegetarian daughter went in there first to ask if they had vegetarian dishes and was told that they could cook something for her. When we got there she was told the choices... More

The appearance of this restaurant is, at first glance, attractive but do not be fooled. It is perhaps the most disappointing dining experience I have had in the last few years. The staff are incredibly rude and unconcerned by their customers wishes, and the food was inferior to every other establishment we dined at on our trip (burnt paella and... More

Casa Santa Pola is a true star in the lot of restaurants in Ronda. We had a wonderful dinner there. The servant was attentive, and the food superb. We were 4, and had Jarretes de cordero and Dado de cochinillo for main dish, and both were exellent. The setting is nice, and the atmosphere relaxed and romantic. We were, however,... More

We went on a Monday evening and the restaurant was pretty much empty. We found out that the chef was not working that evening and quite frankly it was evident in the quality of the meal. The service was OK and the waiter seemed rather nervous and flustered possibly aware that the standard of the meal was not how it... More

Casa Santa Pola was a top dining choice before we arrived in Ronda because of its place in our tour books and close friends who were married in Ronda and have eaten here many times (and are notorious foodies). We were not disappointed with our experience on Easter Sunday. My fiancé and I shared the giant esparagus tempura special. The... More

Great location overlooking the old town and close to the gorge.. Lovely setting and decor. We were a bit disappointed with the limited menu but our food especially the slow cooked lamb shank was excellent. Decent wine list and not overpriced BUT we came away a bit disappointed without being able to say exactly why. Also we were the only... More

I'm surprised at the varying TripAdvisor reviews of Casa Santa Pola. Our party of six dined at the restaurant in mid September '13. We were looking for a place to have a special meal to celebrate the birthday of one of our party and we weren't disappointed. The restaurant is on several descending levels overlooking the gorge in Ronda so... More

Was really impressed by this restaurant. It looks a little dark and dated from outside but the food and attitude are anything but. All 3 courses, the wine and the music were excellent and original. The service was attentive but not intrusive. The night we went was very quiet - only one other couple but we didn't feel awkward. I... More
